Sounds to me like vibration interfering with the gyro. Are your blades balanced? Do you notice any bad vibes? Also, is the gyro mounted in special vibration dumpening foam?

hi. i dont see any bad vibs on it. I guess its got the usual vibs, they stop when head speed is good. blades are balanced, no tracking. I tried using some foam sticked on gyro but still the same.

is your gyro close to your esc? some have reported interference if too close. try moving the gyro as far away from the esc as possible.

Mine does the same thing. do you have the tail servo and gyro mount? If not order that, and the diy tail pushrod kit. It really calms the tail down by getting rid of all that slop. The tail control on the shogun is crappy stock but the upgrades that are available really stiffen it up. I ordered mine from Mjp carbon.
